RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is asking his administration's agency heads to suggest where to cut state spending to help bridge an estimated $1.5 billion budget gap.
    
McAuliffe's chief of staff, Paul Reagan, sent a memo to agency heads asking them to submit proposal of how to cut spending by 5 percent.
    
The proposals are due Sept. 20.
    
Last week, McAuliffe warned Virginia lawmakers to brace for "tough decisions ahead" to address the new budget shortfall, which is driven largely by lower-than-expected income and sales tax collections.
